ErrorTemplates.TXT

The following is a list of the error codes I have placed in the installed build error template "ErrorTemplates.TXT" file. This file is used by MAKEMSI as a source of template message text when a build error occurs and so may have messages which are unlikely to occur at install time (and so are missing from the generated MSI).

The same codes should be listed in "MSI.CHM" (and online "Windows Installer Error Messages").

If you are looking at this page you may be trying to solve a build or installation issue, be sure to have a look at the "Troubleshooting" section of this document!
